My male australian shephard, born 9-3-18 was diagnosed with strangles today, 11-26-18. I am concerned with this affecting the house breaking/training we are doing as will as him whinning in pain when playing with him, specifically around his ears and head. Any suggestions with the house breaking obsticle that we are going to have to deal with while on the medication?

Good morning.so sorry about your pup. My advice wou,d be to try as much as possible to stick to routine, under any circumstances. Does the medication disagree with your dog? Is that where the house breaking concern stems from? If that is the case, I would advise a trip outside after meds as well as after meals. Then like usual, lots of praise when he goes to the bathroom outside. Best of luck!

Hello. I agree with Sarah. And I also think that you should take the more important and impactful problem of the strangles first and worry about normal puppy stuff later. I don’t think that you will lose much ground while they are recovering. Medical (serious medical) problems first. Behavioral stuff second. Be patient and I hope your pup recovers quickly.
